Destiny Xur Gear And Location Today, March 6 To 8: Helm Of Saint-14 And Ice Breaker Are Worthy Buys This Week
The weekend has arrived, meaning mysterious Destiny merchant Xûr is back, as well. The vendor is the only one in the game to sell exotic weapons, and every week is different than the last.
This week Xûr is in the Hunter lounge area in the Hangar. He's in a new location from one week to the next, and his stock differs every time. Xûr appears on Friday (4 a.m. Eastern) and departs overnight between Saturday and Sunday.
Xûr always sells three exotic armor pieces--one for each class--and an exotic weapon. Since The Dark Below's release, Xûr also offers an Exotic Shard, which is needed to upgrade Exotic weapons to their final tier, and he's selling an Exotic Helmet Armor Engram. Here's the gear on sale this weekend:
Titan Armor: Helm of Saint-14
Hunter Armor: Young Ahamkara's Spine
Warlock Armor: Skull of Dire Ahamkara
Exotic Weapon: Ice Breaker
In post-The Dark Below Destiny, Xûr has a selection of items to upgrade in addition to his normal wares--the new list you see in his inventory is not simply gear for sale. You need the original weapon or armor piece to trade in for an upgrade, an Exotic Shard, and some Glimmer--this is meant to keep original exotics gained before the expansion relevant and up to par with the new gear.
These are the exotic weapons and armor available for upgrade: Achlyophage Symbiote, Mask of the Third Man, Helm of Inmost Light, An Insurmountable Skullfort, Light Beyond Nemesis, Sunbreakers,SUROS Regime, Bad Juju, MIDA Multi-Tool, Plan C, Thunderlord, and Gjallarhorn.
